While healthcare workers continue to fight the good fight on the frontlines, all while working grueling hours, a number of retailers want to thank them for their dedication. To do so, some companies and brands offer discounts as a show of appreciation. Take the Nike healthcare discount, for example.
Nike has one of the most prominent displays of this gratitude, offering a 10% discount to qualifying healthcare professionals. If you’re a healthcare worker in need of a new pair of kicks or some athletic apparel, you’ll want the ins and outs of how best to access this savings. Here’s what you need to know about how the discount works and who can take advantage of it.

The 10% discount can only be used at Nike.com and on the Nike app, available on both iPhone and Android devices. Unfortunately, it’s not applicable in stores. It also doesn’t apply to Nike products sold on other online platforms or retail stores. The discount only applies to the first $500 of a qualified purchase.
The discount doesn’t apply to the following items:
- Nike By You
- Gift cards
- Select Launch and SNKRS products
- Apple products
Additionally, it cannot be combined with other Nike sales and promotions, except for a free shipping discount. In some cases, you may be better off using other sales instead of the healthcare worker discount.
How do I sign up for the healthcare worker discount at Nike?
Like other employment-based discount programs, you must sign up and create an account with SheerID. SheerID is a third-party website that verifies your employment information. You’ll have to show official documentation that proves you’re currently employed in the field.
Nike’s website claims that verification can be instant but should not take more than 20 minutes.
Once SheerID approves your application, you’ll be able to use your Nike discount code. You’ll have to create a Nike member account and link it to your SheerID. Then expect to receive a single-use promo code that you can apply toward purchases. Healthcare workers can only use the discount once every seven days. This is actually a pretty sweet deal considering you can use it all year.
SheerID will check your employment once a year. If you’re no longer employed by an eligible organization, you’ll lose your discount.
